Philippine National Heroes

Philippine National Heroes

These are the nine Filipino historical figures that were recommended as national heroes by the National Heroes Committee on November 15, 1995.

The report was submitted to the Department of Education, Culture and Sports on November 22, 1995. However, no action was taken afterwards. It was speculated that any action might cause a number of requests for proclamation or trigger debates that revolve around the controversies about the concerned historical figures.

The National Heroes Committee was formed on March 28, 1993 by President Fidel V. Ramos under Executive Order No. 75. E.O. 75 was titled "Creating the National Heroes Committee Under the Office of the President". The National Historical Committee's duty was to study, evaluate and recommend Filipino national heroes to recognize their heroic character and remarkable achievements for the country.
